10,000 Russos are a formidable force< their industrial psych&post/punk has been charming fuzz/heads across the globe with its stomping, shamanic mantras and otherworldly krautrock slant. 10,000 Russos have once again transcended the boundaries of psychedelia as we know it today< their dark, droning noise is twisted, distorted and pushed to its limit. istress Dis/tress' is so ritualistic and industrial it sees their usual post/punk sound - a primal and celestial mix of The Fall, NEU! and Space/men 3 - pushed within an inch of techno territory with its abrasive, metronomic rhythms.
Based in Brighton, 14 Iced Bears was formed in 1985 by Robert Sekula and drummer Nick Emery. Their punky, DIY pop ethic held melody as key and technical expertise as less of an issue.
